No.  In fact, I've been creating the tool for the purpose of convincing 
myself that ZCML is right, even though I still believe it's wrong. :-)

One thing I've learned from the GUI project, however, is that its 
greatest value is being able to *query* the configuration.  It lets you 
answer questions like "where are all the views named update.html?". 
That's valuable independently of the format of ZCML.
